In the meantime, it's all too easy to Animal Crossing New Horizons Bells absorb yourself in self-expression and personalization. This starts with your character. You can actually choose your appearance for the first time in the series, such as skin colour, and not one of the options are locked to sex. Actually, villagers will only refer to players with pronouns -- so when a friend visits, your villagers will talk about them instead of her or him.
All hairstyles and clothing options are available to anyone, and you may change hair and your face at any moment. A dedicated outfit menu that allows you preview a outfit instead of switching in and out of clothing until you find what you prefer further improves dressing up.
Crafting is a significant portion of personalization. You can not craft everything--some sorts of furniture are only available from the shop or found blatantly --but you can find whole sets of furniture which can only be crafted, and those are mainly the bits which you can further customize with different colors and finishes. At first, I crafted all those bits I needed but hadn't been able to buy, like a mirror, but I wound up styling an whole room around furniture I'd crafted and customized. It's that extra bit of flexibility in layout which can help inspire imagination and makes every individual's home feel special to them.
More importantly, you can place furniture pretty much anywhere outside. I even crafted a cabin-inspired chair I would not ever put in Animal Crossing Items my house because it fit the woodsy feel I needed for the hills on my island, which made me understand just how much use I could get out of furniture which isn't always my style.
